Pours a light golden color, a slight haze. White head, perfect pour. Nice lacing.

Nose is rather rich carmel malts, and some spicy hops.

Entry is very nice, a spicy, rich malt - english-style pedigree. I love the spicy flavor...a bit of floral hops with a rich carmel malt. The hops say pacific northwest. Flows out with nice bittering that bites at the palate. Cleans up the sweet malts, leaves just a bit of that rich carmel malt. Leaves me wanting more with each savored sip. Near perfect balance.

A classy and distinguished english style ale that is decidedly american.

Slight haze to a light golden brew. The foam and lacing are impressive.

Spicy hop nose to go with a solid slightly sweet malt backbone.

Spicy hops and malt that leans more towards the grain side than caramel side.

Good mouthfeel.

This tastes a lot like Snow King. ??
